SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19: CLIENT NOTICE

A central goal of Acumen Assessments is to provide a safe environment for our clients and staff and to advance the safety of our community. We would like to offer the below information for educational purposes as well as to state our protocols, suggestions, and requirements for working together at this time. 

  1. Acumen Assessments wants you to be aware of the risks of contracting COVID-19 before, during, and after your evaluation. SARS-CoV-2 is a highly contagious virus that can lead to serious illness and even death. Early data suggests that older individuals with certain comorbidities (e.g. hypertension, obesity, diabetes, respiratory or heart disease, etc.) may be at greater risk. You could contract COVID-19 from a variety of sources.

  2. The COVID-19 disease has a long incubation period. You, your patients, other clients, and our staff may have the virus that causes COVID-19 and not show symptoms, yet still be highly contagious. Determining who is infected by the virus is challenging and complicated due to the limited availability for virus testing and the accuracy of testing. 

  3. In times of restrictive social isolation and “Stay Home, Stay Safe” orders, the very act of leaving home and coming to our facility carries some inherent risk of SARS-CoV-2 exposure, and then COVID-19. Various States have opened up to Phase II allowing for more freedom contingent upon taking precautions and following CDC and State guidelines. Acumen Assessments is working to provide a safe and sanitary experience as currently possible.

  4. The simplest, most scientifically-proven prevention methods to date include:

  • Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet between people at all times if possible.

  • Wearing a surgical mask (changed daily) or cloth face covering that is cleaned with soapy water in the evening and dried overnight.

  • Minimizing interaction with other people except as necessary.

  • Get take-out food rather than eating in restaurants.

  • Avoid any close contact with people who are sick with COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, body aches, and general fatigue).

  • Frequent hand washing or sanitizing for at least 20 seconds each time, especially before and after eating or touching the face or nose, putting on and taking off face masks or coverings.

  • Regular and frequents cleansing of high-use surfaces (e.g. counters, doorknobs, drawer, cupboard, and refrigerator handles) with soap, bleach, or germicidal/viricidal cleansers. 

  • We ask that you refrain from staying in an Airbnb type facility. 

We will ask you to acknowledge reviewing this information fully, and confirm that you understand its contents. We will ask that you accept there is an increased risk of contracting the COVID-19 disease if you visit or receive services outside of your home. We will ask that you understand and accept the additional risk of contracting COVID-19 from contact in our facility. We will also ask you to acknowledge that you could contract the COVID-19 disease from outside this facility and unrelated to your visit with us. We will ask you to agree to abide by the COVID-19 prevention measures listed above. We will ask you to agree to ask the staff, your primary doctor, and dwelling partners, and those who come in near contact with you to do the same.

We hope you and your loved ones continue to be safe and well during this unprecedented time.
